According to your requirements the only boards with four usb 3.o headers are going to be the very high end boards like this one.

GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

This is the top Gigabyte board and it's a lot less then the Asus board.

Here are some more and it seems like Gigabyte has a better selection with the usb 3.0 headers.

I was going to be using the z77 asus sabertooth motherboard but it only has 2 usb 3.0 headers so 2 would have to be usb 2.0 and budget around $200

The Maximus V Formula would be the best options for you. Nothing beats it.

And you really don't need the Maximus V Extreme if you aren't gonna overclock like crazy.
